Something to think about should one consider partaking of walmarts week long "Black Friday" stampede...

"Walmart is where the poor go to work until they die"

"The Walmart Employee website is encouraging us to refute your stories, asking us to do their PR for them and tell the stories of "the Real Walmart". The only problem is that the stories in your article ARE the real Walmart. The saddest thing is that many of us won't even disagree with the site, because we're all afraid to get fired...

I've been with the company for 4 years now. For the first two years I kept a pretty good attitude, despite my divorce, deteriorating conditions at work, and actually ending up homeless. Do you think they cared, at all? The stores cut hours. I went from 28 hours a week to 7. SEVEN hours a week, and 14 if I was lucky. One of the disabled ladies that worked as a door greeter lost her house of thirty years, just a year short of paying off her mortgage, because her hours were cut and she couldn't even eat. Our manager said she wanted to apologize for the cut hours and she didn't want anyone going without food or necessities, so to let her know if there were problems. I hadn't eaten in two days, and I asked for help, crying in her office. She told me she would get me a $50 gift card by the end of the day. When I went to find her the end of my shift, she'd already left. When I asked about it the next day, she said she'd given it to "A shift manager" to give to me, and she'd have to get onto that manager for not getting it to me. Do you think I've ever gotten that card

And I know, I've seen the comments of people who are better off and sitting in their cozy houses with their nice cars and their biggest monetary concern being funding their next trip to Disney, or getting courtside seats: "How dare evil Walmart force people to apply and work there", or "Get an education, and you won't have to work there". Well, Guess what? I am very much educated. I have a BA in Education, but since the Education system is going the way of the Dodo, it's impossible to get a job. I actually work two jobs to try to support my husband and I, and I am ALSO in school, trying to get another degree so that I can maybe find a job somewhere other than Walmart, y yo hablo espanol...

It is so easy for you, as a customer, to look at our weary, broken faces and see that we've given up. It is so easy to lose your temper because this item is not in stock, and there is never anyone in the department, and the store is dirty. It's easy to scream for a manager because an employee walked past you without helping you, when they've been dealing with being kicked by little kids, yelled at by other customers, and having to do work far outside their job description and capabilities for the last 4 hours, and they just really, REALLY needed to go to the bathroom.

It would be so easy to look at one of your cashiers, and just say "thank you", or "I'm sorry". It would be easy to realize that we are human beings, working one of the most stressful jobs with absolutely no support, and have some compassion. We don't want to be where we are, and we all start out happy and cheerful and helpful; and then Walmart kills our souls, and breaks our spirit, and grinds us down. Walmart is where the poor go to work until they die."

Does anyone know, if I buy a cell phone and use it only at home, do I even need a service provider or can I just use my WIFI  and does it subtract minutes if I do need a provider?
Not sure how that works cause ATM my Son has a smartphone but I don't...Thanks to anyone that can give some feedback!

Story
Tagline
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Cor 13:4-13
